MBA graduate with six years of prior consulting experience in organizational effectiveness and business strategy. Five years of fund management exposure in sourcing deals, leading due diligence, and closing investment rounds. My work in Fund Management and Venture Capital led me to create curriculum and workshops for founders and new investors.
